I think they should link all the shards through 1 main gate. I know they will kill the xfer token revenue. Maybe they could make it an upgrade that you'd have to pay for one time. All the shards are set up the same and when you switch shards your runes work fine. This way no houses are lost and you could place a big house on an lesser used shards and go to a fel spawn on that shard without being raided by reds. It woulld be very nice to participate in the history of all the shards. Imagine a great character, hero or trader being know though out all shards. Wouldn't you like to be known everywhere. I believe this can be done and might even bring players back to the game having all these shards to shop, explore or conquer.
